Bug#47440: apt-get could learn about Contents-*.gz files
Now and then you want to install any package that contains a certain
file. Obviously, what you need to do is grep through the relevant
Contents-* files. Which you need to update first. And somehow keep track
of all of them.
Sounds like a job for apt.
